Abstract

In this study, the Mathematics Lab Attitude Scale consisting of 36 Items is developedfor Secondaryschool students. Scale consisted of Six sub-dimensions such as Self-Efficacy and Mathematics Lab, Mathematics lab and Usefulness, Mathematics lab and teacher perception,Anxiety and Mathematics Lab, Enjoyment and Mathematics Lab and Mathematics lab and its knowledge. The statements of response are given with five levels of agreement. Reliability was established by Test-Retest method, Split Half Method and Cronbach’s Alpha method.This scale shows that the mathematical attitudes of Secondary school students can be measured more accurately by using less mathematical attitude items.
